How do FHA loans compare to conventional loans?
Conventional loans usually require a larger down payment. And, if you have less than perfect credit you may not qualify for many conventional loans even if the interest rates and fees are comparable to FHA. The best thing to do is compare the cost of the conventional loan to an FHA loan line-by-line. What are the fees on each? What is the interest rate? How much is the mortgage insurance on each? How much down payment is required? For some borrowers, a conventional loan may be less expensive. For many others, it will be more expensive than FHA.
What if my credit is less than perfect?
Capitol City Lending offers programs for consumers whose credit has been impaired in the past. If you have a history of bankruptcy, late payments or other credit problems, we are here to help you determine possible financing options.
What is the minimum down payment required for a home loan?
We offer home loans with down payments as low as 2.25%. That would be a $2,250 down payment for a $100,000 purchase price.
